Speech Recognition in the Browser
Online Dictation is a free to use web tool that converts your speech into text. All you have to do is visit the site and click on the microphone icon on the homepage, next to the page’s title. Next you speak a sentence into your microphone; the speech is processed, converted to text, and displayed. Any errors can be manually removed by clicking on the text and making it editable. You can also copy the text and use it somewhere else by pasting it.
To get started, just connect the microphone to your computer and click the Start Dictation button.
Dictation uses your browser's local Storage to save all the transcribed text automatically as you speak. That means you can close the browser and it will resume from where you left off.
Type with your voice. Dictation turns your Google Chrome into a speech recognition app.
The app internally uses the built-in speech recognition engine of Google Chrome to transform your voice into digital text.
Speak in your Native Language
You don't have to speak in English as Chrome's engine can recognize quite a few languages including Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Malay, Indonesian and more. Dictation will automatically determine your browser's default launguage and uses it for subsequent transcriptions.
